Skillet Summer Squash

Rating: Unrated
The good old-fashioned country way. This is definitely NOT diet food. You don't drain the bacon fat off after you brown it. If you really have to, you can substitute butter, but it won't be the same. You can also use this recipe with a combination of yellow and pattypan squash.

This is just like Nonni used to make! Fresh zucchini, onions, and tomatoes sauteed with Italian seasonings make a perfect complement to any meal. Serve alone or over rice.
